Did you know that the average woman uses 12 different personal care products on a daily basis? Tweet this!
Did you know that there are over 80,000 chemicals in the products we use again and again and again but only about 100 of them have actually been tested for safety? Tweet this!
The chemicals that we are exposed to by putting them in, on, and around our bodies have the potential to impact our health in many ways and have been connected:
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Hormonal disruption
- Resistant weight loss
I share this not to scare you but to empower you.
As you know, I believe in the importance of beginning with awareness. This leads me to a really important reminder. If you have one takeaway from reading this today, have it be this – you cannot blame yourself or allow yourself to feel guilt for what you didn’t know. Tweet this!
You have to start somewhere, and beginning to understand what’s in the products that you use most often is the perfect place.
There was a recent story involving Johnson and Johnson having their license suspended that led to a lot of confusion. For me, the where, the when, and the reach of the problem did not really matter. Here’s why – regardless of the incident, Johnson and Johnson, and many other companies, continue to use harmful chemicals in our products. Consumer pressure is changing this – there are many more safe products available than there were even a handful of years ago. But in order for there to be consumer pressure, there has to be consumer awareness.
This is so important and I want to make it easy for you. I opened up 10 spots in my schedule for FREE What’s Up with All These Toxins Discovery Sessions. There are only 3 left, so if you want one, click here and grab your spot before they are all gone.
I don’t often offer free sessions so this is a special opportunity for you if you are ready to stop worrying and start taking action.
I look forward to connecting with you soon.

Wow, it never occurred to me that even personal care products could effect pregnancy. I have a lot to be educated on!
Nicole, the beauty is that there’s support for everyone who wants to learn more about this! It’s never something you have to do all on your own.
I’m eager to update my beauty routine with natural supplies. It’s really overwhelming to get started!
Jeannette, I’ve got something coming up that you might be interested in so stay tuned!
It’s so hard to go backwards. I wish I didn’t have so many things in my home that I now have to worry about!
You start simple – start with one thing. If you’re interested in grabbing one of the What’s Up with All These Toxins Discovery Sessions, this is exactly where we start.
Like Jeannette, I’ve been updating my beauty supplies lately. As I know better, I do better. It’s also a question of finding something natural that works for me.
“As I know better, I do better.” I love that Barb!
No one EVER talked about any of this stuff when I was pregnant, and I always wonder if it led to some of the things my kids struggle with. Thanks for helping pregnant ladies sort this out!
It is a great service to help people figure out what is actually in the products they use.
Thanks Janeane!It can feel so overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to. I love helping women discover how much control they have in this area of their lives – it’s incredible!
I remember telling my husband he couldn’t use aerosol deodorant when I was pregnant! So many things to worry about
Sarah – so many things to learn! Worry doesn’t have to be part of the equation.
